About the Book:
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis—with explosive results.
Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project – a literal dream come true – Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.
Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school – archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.
But when her equipment starts to go missing and the staff ignore her, Bee could swear she sees Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas… devouring her with those eyes. The possibilities have all her neurons firing.
But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there’s only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do?
Love on the Brain is another rom-com with characters from STEM backgrounds. This is another enemies to lovers story that follows Bee and Levi as they start off on opposite sides of the board and work their way towards a common understanding. If you enjoyed The Love Hypothesis, then this book is for you.
I found the book to be quite along the lines of the previous book. There was nothing remarkable about the characters, however, I did enjoy reading about Bree’s different points of view, especially her handle on twitter focusing on What would Marie Curie do? Bree is an ardent fan of Marie Curie and spends most of her time wondering how she would have handled different situations. This serves as an inspiration for her most of the time to go ahead with her decisions and to tackle most of the problems in front of her.
Both Bree and Levi are exceptional and very good in the respective fields and roles. Due to a prior misunderstanding, they spend most of their time against each other until they find out that they have a common goal. From here, the narrative shifts and becomes quite interesting. Though some of their banter didn’t interest me much, I enjoyed reading about them overall. I also enjoyed reading about some of the scientific aspects of the story that the author expertly brings into the plot. These were well written and show how the author draws upon her expertise as well while writing the story.
This book was a feel good book that I could read quickly. I was not as invested in the characters as I would have liked to be, but this didn’t take away from the overall plot. I did enjoy reading the book and I would definitely recommend it as a one time read for all fans of a good romance novel.
